24m. Sustained climbing up the long deep groove leads to a big triangular roof. The most popular exit is to teeter right (4c) although going left is harder and more strenuous (5a). © ROCKFAX

Corner was full of mud, grass and filth once a few meters above the ground so decided to run away and leave it for a far dryer day.

Rockfax copied the mistake from the old Kinder guide and have left & right finishes muddled up, its hard and sternuous going right at the top, delicate slabbing climbing finishing left.

Exited left at 5a. Lovely climb, bit wet towards the top despite a couple of days of sunshine. Probably 4b until the top slab.
